Paul Clark found his way to victory lane once again this season in Stock 8 action Saturday evening at Mountain View Speedway. Kenneth Brown of Mountain City wound up second and never was able to get close enough to Clark to mount a challenge. Dale White also of Mountain City rounded out the top three.

In Stock 4 action, Jimmy Price of Creston bested Michael Eller also of Creston for the win in a new car. Jon Reid of Lincolnton rounded out the top three. The Outlaw 4’s were the next division to hit the track. Danny Lewis Sr. lead at the drop of the green with Roger Barker in tow. Daniel Lewis Jr. and Barker battled back and forth until Lewis took over second.
The next lap of the race saw Barker hard into the inside backstretch wall ending his night. He was ok. Once the race resumed, the drivers made one more lap before heavy rain began to fall on the Speedway and officials red flagged the race. The race was called and Danny Lewis Sr. was awarded the win. Race officials made the call several minutes later to end the nights racing event due to the heavy rain.
